So for some reason, totally unknown to me, I now have a very annoying color picker setup in Photoshop. At the moment, whenever I change the colour in the right-hand color selector (which updates the main selector area) the colors available in that right hand area totally change. Very annoying, and very difficult to get a color you want. See screenshot below of my current color picker:

The default one worked very well for me, and I want it back. How?

You can choose Adobe's color picker from Photoshop's preferences window.

Selecting the 'H' radio button fixes it, previously it was set to 'R' which is selecting from the 'Red' spectrum, I guess.
